Zero Emission Transport for visitors at BMICH

Tue, 14 Jan 2020 Uncategorized

A fleet of four electric three wheelers powered by solar energy was deployed for use for the visitors of the BMICH recently. These electric three wheelers, named as E- trikes are a part of a Korean Energy Agency’s assistance to Sri Lanka through the Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority of the Ministry of Power & Energy.

The project was designed to utilize the existing solar PV installation at BMICH to operate an electric vehicle charging station. The four E- trikes will be initially used to provide in- compound transport to visitors, as BMICH is a facility which spans a large extent of land.

Hon. Mahinda Amaraweera, Minister of Transportation, Power and Energy and Hon. Mahindananda Aluthgamage, State Minister of Power along with Dr. Asanka Rodrigo Director General, Sustainable Energy Authority and Mr. Minjae Kang representing Korea Energy Agency participated at the handing over ceremony. Mr. Sunil Dissanayake, Director / Chief Executive, BMICH accepted the E- trikes on behalf of the BMICH.
